Martin W. Jaszczuk



Martin Jaszczuk started law school at the age of 19, tried more than a dozen cases to verdict (on Canada’s equivalent of a 7/11 license) when he was 21 years old, obtained his first law degree (LL.B.) when he was 22, obtained his second law degree (J.D.) when he was 25, subsequently became a partner at a leading AmLaw100 firm, and became a nationally-recognized TCPA class action defense lawyer by the time he was in his mid-thirties, routinely retained by some of the country’s largest Fortune 500 companies to lead the defense of their most significant nationwide TCPA class actions.  Since forming Jaszczuk P.C., a Chicago-based boutique litigation firm with a nationwide practice, Martin has concentrated his practice on the litigation of high-stakes class action, insurance recovery and business litigation matters.
